We are finding that an increasing number of patients are submitting “urgent” requests that they expect to be ready within just a few hours. Most of these requests are for routine, regular medications that should really have been ordered earlier.
Urgent requests disrupt the working day of the already busy prescribing admin staff and GPs, and sometimes the care of the patient they are seeing at the time. They often have to be managed by clinicians who are not familiar with you and your medical problems. It can therefore often take more clinical time to check, process and sign these prescriptions safely.
We would like your help to reduce the number of “Urgent” requests by asking you to make sure you order your medication on time and allow 48 hours for processing. Our policy for urgent requests has been reviewed, and is in line with many other surgeries:
Please bear in mind many prescriptions are completed on the same day as they are ordered and go electronically to pharmacies the same day. However this cannot be guaranteed. It could be late that evening so it is worth checking with your pharmacy the next day.
The practice will keep a list of patients who frequently submit urgent requests.
